Always good food, or drink. When it is necessary to go to or thru Bellingham, we always plan to have breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Old Skylark Café. My wife prefers the lower level, but both grand settings to enjoy a meal. Never had anything but delicious food here. It is like a place from the past, the way... More

Had a light lunch with friends and not one of were disappointed! We we seated very quickly and the staff were very patient whilst we checked out the menu. We wanted a light lunch and this is exactly what we got! Would recommend this friendly restaurant in Fairhaven!

We arrived at 5:30 for a beverage with friends and left at 8:15 after the first set of the three-piece Jazz combo. Skylarks is in the Fairhaven district of Bellingham and that speaks to the venue. The only part "hidden" is the phone both beside the brick walls just south of the door. Service was very good. Food was good... More

Great atmosphere with all the characteristics of an old inn. It had a lovely fire warming us on a rainy cold afternoon too. The service was friendly and helpful in helping us decide what to order. And the food was excellent. I had a creamy pumpkin bisque that was wonderful and a grilled cheese sandwich. My friends had the salmon... More

Went here with my wife and kids in the middle of the afternoon. Food was good, waitress knew her stuff and was very accommodating. My son had the clam chowder and really enjoyed it.

Absolutely nothing outstanding about this restaurant. It is just run of the mill atmosphere and food. Would not be my top 5 to recommend nor return too. The service was not good and the food unremarkable.

Stop there twice for lunch. Bar and tablkres in the front and in back at a lower level is more of a garden room with a lighter atmosphere. The bar area can get a bit noisy with bar patrons enjoying too much. Food was good, staff attentive, price OK.

We met our daughter here for a Friday night dinner. Our server was attentive and quite amusing. Talked me into adding alcohol into my hot cider - not something I do often. I ordered the fish and chips, and it hit the spot even tho' the cole slaw was fancier than the mayo slaw my momma makes (and thus crave.)... More

We had lunch here and were disappointed in the food. They had a few outdoor tables, which looked very pleasant, but most of the seating was indoors and nothing special.

I like the atmosphere here, it's kind of old fashioned in a good way. The food can be hit or miss. I had some incredible soup but have been left slightly underwhelmed with some entrees. I have eaten here 4 times. I certainly think it's a fine place to go if you happen to be in Fairhaven and hungry but... More
